Erkrath, Germany, 2016-11-11- Euro-pallets are increasingly popular. However, more in its processed form as furnishings like tables, benches or "industrial style" shelves. Whereas in the transport world, where the wooden pallet has its original use, it is often the bone of contention. But why does the pallet have such a bad reputation?
According to a recent study by EKUPAC GmbH on re-usable transport packaging, the use of re-usable pallets in European goods transport has increased in the last 15 years from 280 million to 550 million units and has become indispensable. Germany is the European leader with around 100 million wooden skids circulating yearly.
The difficulty with the pallet is its "re-usability" which comprises an exchange of goods delivered on pallets in return for empty pallets. But Euro-pallet is not equal to Euro-pallet. Behind the supposedly simple pallet exchange principle there are challenges for all involved: for the transport company as intermediate consignee, for the driver who transports the consignment and for the recipient of the unloaded goods.Read more >
